Baptiste creators tease second series

Share article:

The creators of "Baptiste" have hinted at a second series.

Harry and Jack Williams, the brains behind "The Missing" spin-off, have revealed their ideas for another instalment of the popular BBC One show, which stars Tcheky Karyo as the titular detective Julien Baptiste, after the final episode of the first season aired with plenty of twists and cliffhangers on Sunday night (24.03.19).

The creators of the drama also revealed that they have thought about bringing back several characters and have shared their ideas for revisiting Baptiste's son Niels" (Boris Van Severen) story, after he killed his mum and was arrested in the dramatic final episode.

Asked if they want to continue his plot, they told Digital Spy: "I think so, yeah. When we first came up with Julien having this illegitimate son, and also the fact that he was capable of this thing, we definitely thought, "Yeah, that's a great end point for the series."

"But going forward, having Julien have this son who has done these awful things, is a great thing psychologically for him to dig into, because he's Julien Baptiste. He's going to want to try and understand that in his own way."

The pair also admitted that there are "elements that are unexplored" and revealed that they have thought about bringing back several characters in both "The Missing" and "Baptiste".

Harry said: "We're always keen to keep the world alive, and keep its history alive in the show. But it's got to be if the story allows it, really."

Jack would like to see Jason Flemyng - who played Mark Walsh in "The Missing" - return.

He added: "Jason Flemyng! We keep talking about bringing Jason Flemyng back [as Mark Walsh], but that hasn't happened yet."

However, one character that won't be making a comeback is Tom Hollander's Edward Stratton.

He continued: "I don't think we'll be seeing Tom Hollander's character again, which is a shame, because he's really good!

"But there are elements, like with Niels, where that's something that we wish we had explored more.

"Or Genevieve's (Jessica Raine) character, who we don't know a lot about.

"There's definitely elements that are unexplored. And our hope is that "Baptiste" might return."
